Mailboxes that have been directly hit by a snowplow will be repaired at the City’s expense as soon as time and weather permit. In certain cases, immediate repairs will be made in order to avoid mail delivery disruptions. Please email the Public Works Department or use our Reporting Tool to report a damaged mailbox. Please note: the City is not responsible for mailboxes knocked over by snow rolling off the plows. To avoid potential damage to your mailbox, please make sure it is installed according to the City specifications.
All other City streets (excluding those in private developments) are plowed by the Rosemount Public Works Department according to the following priorities:
1. Main thoroughfares 2. Streets providing access to schools and commercial businesses 3. Low volume residential streets 4. City parking lots and ice rinks, and certain sidewalks and trails
In most cases, plowing will commence after snowfall exceeds two inches and will continue until all streets are cleared of snow and ice. Generally, for snowfall events that begin after 6:00 P.M., plowing will begin the following morning at 2:00 A.M.
Visit the Maps page to see the priority plowing map, the trail and sidewalk plowing map, and other City maps.
The Public Works Department is responsible for clearing snow and ice from certain sidewalks and trails after a snowfall exceeding two inches. Sidewalk and trail plowing occurs only after all City streets have been cleared of snow and ice. The Snowplowing Policy includes a map of all sidewalks and trails that will be cleared by City staff. Sidewalks and trails not shown on the map are the responsibility of the homeowner and should be cleared of snow and ice within 48 hours of the end of the snowfall event. See the trail and sidewalk plowing map and other City maps.
Citizens can register to receive a text message or email when the city begins snowplow operations.
